chairman and the republican party's 2012 vice presidential nominee paul ryan here for his first live interview since the election. chairman, welcome back to "meet the press." >> great to be back with you. >> let's talk about this top priority of the budget battle. it will really mark the beginning of the president's second term. the debt ceiling has been raised, at least temporarily, but there are still big decisions to be made. you specifically said in the last few days that your priority is to make a big down payment on the debt. a debt crisis that you see in this country. >> that's right. >> what do you specifically require? what's the priority? what has the president got to do in your point of view? >> i'll just explain what the speaker said when we passed that bill. our goal is to get cuts and reforms that put us on a path to balancing the budget in a decade. we think the senate ought to offer a budget. they haven't passed a budget in four years, even though we have a law that says we need a budget every year. we haven't seen any solutions offered by the president on how to get
is a contributor to thegrio.com and ryan grim, d.c. bureau chief for "the huffington post." welcome to all of you. i'm glad you're watching again ryan behind you on the screen. professor peterson, we saw a lot of the president this weekend, a lengthy interview given to the new republic and that interview with hillary clinton on "60 minutes." i see republicans grumbling about that interview. is that because it made democrats seem like mature, well-mannered, adults who are trying to get something done? >> yeah. for all of their critique about what they perceived as being a softball interview, have you ever seen a republican politician on a fox news interview? certainly there's a double standard there in their mind. at the end of the day here, i think that the president and secretary clinton being in the same space at the same time is an important sort of sense for the democratic party going forward. one of the president's support of this secretary of state and what she's done in terms of all the travel and all the impact she's had internationally, but, two, it is looking forward a little bit, as mu
and a new day. new today we are getting as well, former republican vice presidentable nominee paul ryan unleashing criticism of president obama as he is starting his second term. listen to this. >> i decided to not comment between the election and inauguration because i wanted to see what kind of president we are looking at here. what kind of path he was putting his administration on, and all of the statements and comments lead me to my he is thinking more of a political conquest than political compromise. >> we will have more on that in just a moment. >>> also, a big week ahead in washington. hillary clinton set to step down as secretary of state this week and the gnat will hold a hearing on kerry to replace her. meantime in a new interview with the new republic president obama says gun control advocates need to listen to their opponents and understand and respect the tradition of hunting. he added that he enjoys skeet shooting at camp david. president weighed in on the dangers of football. they have been making headlines lately. he said if he had son he is not sure he would let his so
after the cynical romney/ryan republican view of the world. makers versus takers. calling out the extremists who refuse to listen to the american people. >> we cannot mistake absolutism for principle. or substitute spectacle for politics. or treat name calling as reasoned debate. >> this was a big speech of real vision. and the president made it clear he's ready to fight at their own game because the people are worth fighting for. >> for we, the people, understand that our country cannot succeed when a shrinking few do very well and a growing many barely make it. we are true to our creed when a little girl born into poverty knows she has the same chance as anybody else to have a future because she is free and equal in the eyes of god and also in our own. >>. >> joining me now, steve kornacki and krystal ball, co-hosts of "the cycle" here on msnbc. thanks for joining me. >> thank you for having us. >> the man once talked about ending the partisan divide accepted that republicans in washington seem to respond better to power politics, it seems. >> there are some things you canno
, managing editor of "delgrio.com" and an msnbc contributor. and ryan grim, editor for "the washington post." >>> joy, let me start with you. the gop finally blinked. >> look, they were going to raise the debt ceiling. >> take us hostage? >> no, you know what, they were always going to raise the debt ceiling. they knew it. everyone knew it. the president wasn't even taking their calls on this issue. he was like you can call me if you want to talk, but not about the debt ceiling. they understood they couldn't negotiate. and at the end of the day, the only reason the republicans held the nation hostage over the debt ceiling the first time around was it was a part of their one-thing strategy. the one thing. the one thing they cared about since 2009, january, was making sure barack obama was a one-term president. that's it. that's the only reason they were able to gamble with the full faith and credit of the united states in the first place. now that they've failed, there is really no reason to do that brin brin brin brin brinksmanship again. >> clearly, they don't have the same motive. >> righ
in college football. it's not just about the nfl. and paul ryan previewed the strategy saying the republicans, ready to let the sequester take effect and move ahead on a big debate in the spring and ryan promises he'll have a balanced budget proposal that will balance the budget in ten years. >> we're not preaching austerity. we're preaching growth and opportunity. what we are saying is if you get our fiscal ship fixed, you preempt austerity. >> on saturday ryan gave the gop some advice at a conference put on by the nation review institute telling republicans to be, quote, prudent. >> the president will bait us. he will portray us as cruel and unyielding. we can't get rattled. we won't play the villain in his more raality plays. we have to stay united. we have to show if given the chance that we can govern, that we have better ideas. >> ryan was joined at the national review over the weekend by a handful of republican governors, including virginia's bob mcdonald, who had this advice for the party. >> our politics are off. and we need to be honest about the problems that our movement and our p
term is starting where his first left off, a debt ceiling crisis and paul ryan twisting the facts. the president was quite insistent monday he will not stomach hostage taking nor medicare and social recipients referred to as takers. >> the commitments we make to each other through medicare and medicaid and social security, these things do not sap our initiative, they strengthen us. they do not make us a nation of takers. they free us to take the risks that make this country great. >> and for those who need a quick campaign 2012 refresher, it was quite obvious to whom that phrase, a nation of takers, was directed at. >> we can become a society where the net majority of americans are takers, not makers. we're going to a majority of takers versus makers in america. more takers than makers in society. takers versus makers in america. >> could have been listening to ayn rand then. joining us is democratic congressman charlie rangel of new york. >> good to be back with you. >> congratulations on a new congress. in an interview today paul ryan said those comments of his had nothing whats
spanish applied the paul ryan playbook almost word for word, and it hasn't worked out so well. but how about britain? surely the united kingdom must be making some progress. sadly not. the british government has just announced that its gdp has shrunk to 0.3% and economists now predict a triple dip recession right across the country. again, britain did precisely what paul ryan has been proposing for this country and with disastrous consequences. so are republicans now prepared to accept the evidence? is paul ryan ready to admit that ice. >> da economics would never work in practice? sadly not. in fact, speaker john boehner has just given him the job of drawing up a new budget that will completely erase the federal deficit in just ten years. and only through spending cuts and no new taxes whatsoever. to do this mr. ryan would have to cut every government operation by one-sixth or if he choose not to touch entitlements or defense, he would have to cut every government operation by almost 40%. this country would be plunged into a recession. and that's the ryan budget. thanks so mu
that it hasn't happened yet. and now we have paul ryan saying the president is ignoring the country's problems in order to focus on the strategy. paul ryan you're the biggest disappointment right, left, or center this country. >>> sarah palin lost her biggest megaphone when fox news dropped her the other day. her contract is gone. no thanks to keep her on the payroll. a lot of republicans say the gop has to stop being the stupid party. maybe getting rid of that is part of it. who knows. maybe cnn will pick her up. >>> lef it to our friends on the right to find new conspiracies. first they question whether hillary clinton had a concussion. new they want to know whether he was pushed. sickos. you're watching "hardball," the place for politics. to the best vacation spot on earth.

they need? >> it's hard to tell with the house. sometimes as we've seen this year. you had paul ryan say some nice things about rubio's plan. we might see him again being a leader on this issue. we'll see. >> so as we know, the devil's in the details. you both looked through the plan. right now it's a pretty 50,000 feet, about four pages long. these senators have not decided how long immigrants, for instance, will have to wait before they become citizens. rubio's saying a longer and less direct path than the dms had wanted. and how the government would verify the enforcement that has been enhanced they're describing in this draft so far. take a listen to what bob corker said on fox yesterday on "get your response." >> details matter. i think right now they're at the talking point stage and this needs to be reduced to legislation. the last time this blew up was when it was reduced to legislation. so it's my hope that we will come up with a bipartisan solution. >> nick, what are some of the details you think that, look, it's four pages right now. we're early on. what details need to be ham
introduced. >> reporter: paul ryan will draft the republican budget, likely with deeper cuts than the one he offered last year. that's a carrot to get conservatives to go along, some still want to see cuts first. >> i will not vote to raise the debt ceiling unless significant efforts are made to fix the underlying problem. >> reporter: senate democrats hint they will pass a budget, but not necessarily soon. >> we'll approach that when we need to. >> reporter: the white house says even though it's short-term, the president will sign it. >> the debt ceiling ought not to be a political football. >> reporter: this republican retreat with one last stand. if they can't compromise, lawmakers paychecks could take a hit. here's what we still don't know, even if they do pass that temporary extension, what about the budget? could america's credit still see a downgrade? mara? >> something tells me having their paychecks on the line might motivate them. >>> on capitol hill, secretary of state hillary clinton will appear before congress later this morning to testify about the september 11th terrorist atta
are not takers in his speech. now, that was as clear a reference to the great paul ryan as anyone could be. ayn rand's philosophy, divide the people between takers and makers, and the president was basically saying we are not takers as a nation. >> that's right. as a matter of fact, he said by helping those who are down and out or in the lower income, we actually strengthen our society, and he's right. and i got to tell you, martin, as i sat there as the son of two former sharecroppers who plowed the land where their foreparents had been slaves and now to sit in the congress of the united states of america, i could relate to that. and i hope and i think what the president is saying is that for -- and he even mentioned a little girl who might be going through some difficulty, may not have some money -- >> growing up in deep poverty. >> but to know she has a chance to be somebody. i could really relate to that. as a matter of fact, it gave me chills and i don't usually get chills. >> there you go, chris. did you get any chills, chris? sorry, chris. congressman cummings was just saying that when t
boehner and paul ryan talk tough on the party's path forward. this morning, we'll talk to another top house republican, georgia's tom price, about the challenges ahead. >>> and the 2012 campaign saw ron paul's supporters get inside the nominating system to buck the establishment. now party leaders might face a fight on new rules put in place at the convention, to shore up the establishment and prevent the next insurgent, rand paul, say, in 2016? good morning from washington. it's thursday, january 24th, 2013. this is "the daily rundown." i'm chuck todd. apologies for the gravelly voice. i have beyonce's lip syncer standing by, shall i need her. anyway, let's get right to my first reads of the morning. secretary of state hillary clinton will be back on the hill today for what is likely to be her last appearance before congress as america's top diplomat. she'll introduce her likely successor, senator john kerry, whose confirmation begins just about an hour from now. three weeks after her release from a new york hospital after a concussion and a blood clot, clinton jousted with republica
on capitol hill. you're seeing paul ryan work on the republicans' budget. so there is that interesting outsider versus insider dynamic going on. >> fascinating. we always say governors are pragmatic, and that seems to be what the divide is right now. i want to bring up something which is fascinating in battleground states. excuse me. republicans in these states, virginia, michigan, ohio, pennsylvania, they control the state legislature, they're trying to move legislation that would make it so it's not winner take all in the electoral college. that it's proportional, so that if you have -- you win via the congressional district, which a lot of republicans are saying, well, it means local control, but take virginia, northern virginia would get the same vote as out near tennessee, which has much less population. what is the purpose behind this? >> look, it's all about giving the republicans a significant advantage in these battleground states that they've lost in the past two presidential cycles. your example of virginia, president obama won the state by four percentage points, won it by
pennsylvania avenue on this saturday. thank you, ma'am. we'll check if with you later. >> thanks. >>> paul ryan is the latest republican offering his prescription for a gop comeback. congressman ryan addressed the national review institute giving them a pep talk of sorts on how to fight the president. >> he needs to delegitimize the republican party and house republicans in particular. he'll try to divide us with phony emergencies and bogus deals. you can't get rattled. we won't play the villain in his morality plays. we have to stay united. we have to show that if given a chance, we can govern. that we have better ideas. >> paul ryan's comments come a few days after fired louisiana governor bobby jindal gave a blunt assessment of his party. >> we have to stop being the stupid party. >> it's time for a new republican party that talks like adults. it's time for us to articulate our plans and visions for america in real terms. it's no secret we had a number of republicans who damaged the plans with offensive and bizarre comments, and i'm here to say we've had enough of that. >> i'll bring in moll
with the majority of voters? >> i think they can. i think they have. the rubios and the ryans and the cruzes are more connected to where people really live. i'm not saying this president is unattractive and people want to continue watching believe that he could unite, but at every turn, he does not unite. he does divide. we're going backwards in the sense of we're identifying by our color and our gender and our income and our region. and it's just -- i would argue that the democrats have moved away from the mainstream way more than the republicans have. and i keep coming back to the state argument. they will -- we are coming up on a midterm. we have a number of democrats that have won in states. the majority of them that mitt romney won by double digitses. with the possible exception of north carolina. those democrats that are in the senate, the senate's not done its job. the house republicans have passed a budget. the senate has not passed a budget since obamacare was passed. those senate democrats that were just elected like heidi heitkamp or claire mccaskill, they're not going to support

the way, he is smacking p i people around, smacking around paul ryan, by employing his own "takers receipt righetorrhetori >> we recognize that no matter how responsibly we live our lives, anyone of us in our time could face a sudden job loss, or illness, or a home sweat away in a terrible storm. the commitments we make to each other, through medicare and medicaid and social security, these things do not sap our initiative, they strengthen us. they do not make us a nation of takers. they free us to take the risks that make this country great. >> that is such an important point about how these programs free us. you know, we don't all have our grandmothers sleeping in the home with us because they now have social security, medicare, that changed the dynamics of poverty among elderly. who used to be the most poverty-stricken segment of society. >> and it used to be the numbers, what are the long-term budget impacts of it. what i was struck by, to go off of paul ryan's premise, in 2008, we need to come together because we're all rational people and let's do it for the common good. now it was,
. >> that was paul ryan, of course, on "meet the press." his first television interview since and he mitt romney lost in november. rooirn made it clear that he wants to help revive the republican party. he certainly took a step towards that in williamsburg. joining me here in our studio is michael steel, msnbc chair analyst and former chair of the republican national committee. it was paul ryan that tried to bring them back from the wilderness by saying let's not fight over the debt ceiling and procedural matters. let's have our big fights about substantive budget issues down the road. trying to tell the more adamant tea party members that they have to get real if they're going to win again. >> i love the fact that paul ryan is emerging as that voice that's going to sort of shape and form the ground on which this new effort by the party will stand. here's the dance. the dance, though, is the rhetoric is one thing. you have the washington class talking and saying what we have to do, and we're going to do this, and rubio and the crew are going to roll out on immigration issue today. that's all great. h
ryan, right there. ryan accused 60% of americans of being takers instead of makers. his party campaigned on reforming medicare, medicaid and social security, but ryan reportedly got booed as he walked through this morning. ryan's reception is a striking reminder of why the republicans lost the election. today the president assured groups like the aarp and labor he hasn't forgotten his promise. >> we must make the hard choices to reduce the cost of health care and the size of our deficit. but we reject the belief that america must choose between caring for the generation that built this country and investing in the generation that will build its future. >> some republicans are complaining now that the president's speech was too partisan and didn't reach out enough. here is a news flash. this isn't about those republican lawmakers. this is about you, the american people and the policies that the president has put forth. it's about fixing the budget without burdening the poor in this country or the elderly or the disabled. the next four years are going to be very interesting. let
in urban areas, which definitely gave president obama the big margin to win this race. >> both paul ryan and mitt romney were outspoken about blaming their loss in november on a democratic coalition of women, minorities, and young people in this country. days after the election paul ryan saw a problem with the system. >> there's always an electoral college strategy in winning these things. and you know what states you need to win to get to 270 electoral votes. and when we watch the -- look at the map here, virginia and ohio coming in, and those ones coming in as tight as they were and then looking like we were going to lose them, that was when it game pretty clear to us we weren't going to win. >> paying attention now? now republicans have a new electoral strategy. win as many electoral votes as you can, even if you lose by a very large margin. rnc chair reince priebus announced his intention to pursue the virginia model nationally. and it would have quite an effect. this is the result of the 2012 presidential election. barack obama won 332 electoral votes, beating mitt romney's 206 vote
your big interview and the republican party coming up with paul ryan on "meet the press." there is breaking news also today. pete williams, the appeals court in d.c., the court right below the supreme court has delivered a big setback to the president on recessed appointments, and these are big recess appointments. sdhoo these are the controversial ones the president made a year ago to richard coregray to run the new consumer protection board and for three people to be on the national labor relations board. all were recess appointments. you may remember this big fight between the president and congress. we come in every day and say we're iffing to be back tomorrow, and the president said that's a sham. you're in recess. i can do these recess appointments. the appeals court said wrong on both counts, mr. president. they said, first of all, the constitution says these can be made during the recess. not a recess. that's a break between one session of congress and the other. the president can only appoint someone when a recess arises. they say the whole point of this recess
those scheduled to testify. congressman paul ryan sat down for his first sunday talk show appearance since the 2012 election. the congressman told "meet the press" moderator david gregory that it's premature to talk about whether he will run for president in 2016. >> i've got an important job to do. i represent wisconsin. i'm chairman of the budget committee at the time we have a fiscal crisis. i think can i do my job representing the people that i work for by focusing on that right now than focusing on these distant things. >> and there's this, a new anti-chuck hagel ad has just popped up days before senate hearings are set to start on his nomination as defense secretary. the ad is from a conservative group called americans for strong defense. at least five other groups from the right and from the left are all organizing to block hagel's nomination. first though shame on you, barack obama. it was one of hillary clinton's most notorious quotes when challenging her 2008 democratic opponent, then candidate obama later shot back calling his opponent, quote, likable enough. the two have
and the huffington post washington bureau chief ryan grim. >> the national mood has changed if you look at the polls. 53% of people have a favorable view of the president's plan. look at the numbers when you take each piece individually. 91% support background checks. 82% more for mental health. all the way down to 60% who favor a ban on assault weapons. how crucial will the obama administration's event, like the one we're going to see today, be to getting something passed legislatively. this whole big pr push they have going on? >> one thing that struck me when we heard senator feinstein read that litany of places that have seen terrible shooting rampages is that one thing that is different this time is that there is at least a big debate going on about it in washington that has engaged the president. it's been a decade since that has happened in response tho to these shooting incidents and tragedies. so that's different. what isn't different is that as we heard senator schumer and others acknowledge, a very hard road to go to get actual legislation passed here. now i think more likely that we woul
. this was better of the two games. pick it up in the second quarter. matt ryan goes deep. julio jones gets both feet in. julio jones had an unstoppable first half of the game. incredible first half of the game. look at that. does a little tap dance. 17-0. but unfortunately, falcons having trouble holding on to leads this year. matt ryan fumbles the ball. they were up three at the time. that was very important. now frank gore untouched into the end zone after about the 12 yard line. this is the 49ers now. they're up three. flacco had a chance, fourth and four. he had to complete that and get first down. the ball was thrown past the first down marker anyway. that was it. they come back from a 17-0 deficit. 28-24. if you can believe this it's the first time in 18 years that the 49ers have been to the super bowl. and this year, it will be harbaugh verse harbaugh for the lombardi trophy. here is jim harbaugh after the game. >> when you win a game like this, it's a team effort. everybody does a little and it adds up to be a lot. tremendous win for us. showed the resolve of the team. we continue in ou
harbaugh super bowl, because it's "way too early," we will talk about new york football. rex ryan having a tough off season so far. he allegedly caused a three-car crash on the night of january 14th when he was trying to beat a red light in a little town known as bethlehem, pennsylvania. the police report said ryan was traveling at a high rate of speed, but the police officers let him off with a written warning. >>> nba, clippers hosting the thunder in a match-up of two of the best teams out west. play of the game, not from the players but the ref -- ow. managed to get back on his feet after he was pegged in the face with the basketball. the referee, derrick richardson, took the blocked shot in the face from jordan, but he got back up, shook it off, stayed in the game. thunder won 109-97. >>> before we go to break, an important programming note. coming up on "morning joe," cleveland indians manager terry francona will be here with a revealing look at his eight years helming the boston red sox. >>> at the top of the hour on "morning joe," we'll talk about the nra and how it's looking to s
that said pass a budget or no pay. >> paul ryan wears that orange tie a lot. boehner wears that green tie quite a bit. the democrat-controlled senate has not produced a detailed budget in 1,366 days. yesterday democratic leaders said the measure is actually a victory for the president. >> i'm not sure what happened at the house republican retreat last week, but it sure had a mellowing effect on their members. maybe there were deep breathing exercises, soft jazz music. something good happened. the bill represents a huge deescalation on the debt ceiling issue. it hands the president his second major win in a month. and it shows that republicans are in full on retreat on fiscal policy. >> meanwhile, speaker boehner offering his interpretation of president obama's inauguration speech and what he sees as the president's two agenda for the second term. >> we're expecting over the next 22 months to be the focus of this administration as they attempt to annihilate the republican party. and let me just tell you, i do believe that is their goal. to just shove us into the dust bin of history. >> the
political position. she says, quote, we haven't begun the fight. >>> paul ryan, the 2012 vice presidential nominee was on nbc's meet the president with some unusual praise for outgoing secretary of state, hillary clinton. >> if we had a clinton presidency, she'd staff the white house, i think we would have fixed this fiscal mess by now. that's not the kind of presidency we're dealing with right now. >>> a week after president obama took the oath of office we have a bizarre treat for you. here's part of the bad lipreading version of the president and chief justice john roberts. >> elvis presley has sex a seal. >> do the space man boogie. >> i'll brush on my sassy face. >> there's two different ien stiens. >> there's two different einsteins. >> i enjoy makeup. >> i enjoy makeup. >> that's all. >>> and that is your morning dish of scrambled politics. go ahead and take a look at the national weather. we turn to nbc meteorologist bill karins. >> it doesn't have to make sense to be funny. >> i enjoy putting on makeup at the end? >> why not. don't we all? good morning, everyone. we've got issues
, my favorite image, is that that included beyoncyonce stand near paul ryan and there was this vision of them together. this is fun. this is kind of american politics and culture, you know, crossing these lines. and will it hold? perhaps not. but for a moment, it is a recognition that we don't have violent military coups in this country. we have a peaceful transition of power. >> you also saw there chairman frank as the reference in terms of his speech where he talked about the struggles that had gone from selma to stone wall and all. on the program, myrlie evers, the widow of medgar evers, on the program, sonya sotomayo justice. show me the change that we're talking about. >> no question. when hispanics, when gay and lesbian and bisexual and transgender people, when people who have been excluded come forward, it is not at the expense of the people, but it's important for everybody. and that is his theme. it is a better america. it is a more prosperous america. it is when you employ the talents of everybody. by the way, we saw that. white men dominated the manufacturing in america. an
alrejected the division the term by paul ryan with the makers and the takers. >> we do not believe that in this country, freedom is reserved for the lucky. or happiness for the few. we recognize that no matter how responsibly we live our lives, any one of us, at any time, may face a job loss or a sudden illness or a home swept away in a terrible storm. the commitments we make to each other through medicare and medicaid and social security, these things do not sap our initiative, they strengthen us. they do not make us a nation of takers, they free us to take the risks that make this country great. >> rick, that was the first time i've ever heard anybody make that fasz nating defense of these safety net programs. wherein parents will risk anything. they'll spend all of their money as they make it on tuition bills for their kids, with the assumption of if worse comes to worse, i can make it on social security. >> yeah, that's right. and this was a -- you might say that this was an ideological speech in the best sense of that word. and the battle of ideas and of visions is one that li
. think of all the diverse opinions they'll get on gop.com. maybe even congressman paul ryan will fill out one for him. here's his reason why he and romney lost the white house. >> i think it's closer than you think. there's the big debate that revolves, you know, they really did a phenomenal job on technology and turn out. i don't see this as a rejection of our principles. i think we need to do a better job of applying our principles to the problems of the day. >> no, no way it was a rejection of principles. this is carl rove level of denial here. so republicans, take a seat. i know where you can find one and watch who's moving america forward while you sit down. just like he did today. >>> joining me now is joan walsh, editor at large at "salon.com," msnbc analyst. and dana milbank, editor for "washington post." >>> dana, let me go to you first. weren't president obama's nominations today a perfect example of how elections have consequences? >> well, sitting where i'm sitting, not in the clint eastwood chair, i would say yes, it certainly does. it's a case of continuing a very tough poli
. >> four years later budget chair and failed vice presidentialal candidate paul ryan isn't quite what to say about it, but he isn't extend aing bouquet of olive branches. >> when we see an opening, however small we should take it, if we want to promote conservativism, we'll need to use every tool at our disposal. sometimes we will have to reject the president's proposals. that time might come more than once. sometimes we'll have to make them better. >> jonathan martin writes today in politico top gop officials are calling for a more strategic mix of opposition and accommodation. exactly where that accommodation exists remains a mystery. for every suggestion of compromise, there is a doubling down on principle. that, i believe, is how we'll achieve republican renewal. >> as president obama told the new republic this weekend, until republicans feel that there's a real price to pay for them just saying no and being ob strkzist, you'll probably see at least a number of them arguing that we should keep on doing it and facing perhaps another four years of stonewalling opposition. the presid
. so let's see what they're offering. what's the take from their hero, paul ryan? i decided to not comment between the election and the inauguration. all of the statements and all of the comments needed me to believe that he's thinking more of a political conquest than a political compromise. >> pity party. table for one, please. the gop is stuck on this one. the president obamas trying to destroy the gop. trying to shove them into the dust pan of history. here's a hint. president obama doesn't need to do that. republicans are doing it just fine all by themselves. for all their bluster about change, gop leaders insist on no overall at all is needed. one gop official everyone says "we don't need a new pair of shoes, we just need to shine our shoes. shine their shoes? that's not goods enough. republicans need to try walking in someone else's shoes for a change. because for all of their talk about out reach to women, the rnc just approved a resolution. calling on congress to defunct planned parenthood with no objections. and while support for women's rights to choose is at an a
in williamsburg we saw one possibility, which was paul ryan and others within the republican party saying to the caucus, we can't win this fight publicly. let the debt ceiling go because we're going to be blamed for the economic fallout. let's push that down the road kick the can down the road, as they say, and try to get some budget out of the senate and try to get some real spending cuts in the next three months. so paul ryan and others within the caucus are seeing a longer game here than is this freshman senator from texas. >> but if you ask paul ryan what he wants to do on gun control, he would say, i don't want to do anything on gun control. you've talked to moderate republicans -- >> what about registration? >> the only thing they might do is something on registration. >> background checks. >> that's it. no idea that you're banning weapons. no chance. >> registration is the worst. >> put it on tape. 5 0% chance it passes. >> good because hunters need 30 bullets. >> if you've seen a single republican say they support that -- >> a democratic lobbyist last night work
